Renting an unlocked cell phone is your best option for short or infrequent travel abroad. It is also the best option when your destinations include either Japan or South Korea in addition to other Asian nations, because the cellular technologies used in South Korea and Japan differ from technologies in the rest of Asia.
If you travel infrequently to a region where the cellular network is not compatible with your own cell phone, the best solution is to rent an unlocked GSM cell phone. What countries use cellular networks that are incompatible with my phone?
Your US or Canada cell phone is based on AMPS technology and will not work under the GSM system used in the rest of the world. Moreover, Japan and South Korea use highly specialized CDMA technology and it is very hard and expensive to get a Japanese or Korean cell phone without a local citizenship.
